Most Inspiring Person of 2007

This entry was posted in History on by .

Beliefnet has been polling its readers for a little while now, trying to decide on the most inspiring person of 2007.

They finally named the winner, Liviu Librescu. Librescu, a Holocaust survivor, was a professor at Virginia Tech. He used his body to barricade the door of his second-story classroom so his students could escape out windows during the shooting spree in April that killed 32.

Since then, Chabad has established a new center named after the professor at Virginia Tech.
